Speaking before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in October last year, Murphy highlighted his six key goals for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

He said then that it was necessary to help BiH achieve candidate status for membership in the European Union, work on reforms of the rule of law, especially in the fight against corruption, work on increasing trade with the United States, oppose China's and Russia's aspirations in BiH, work on reconciliation among the population and work to make BiH a safe country for Americans living and working there.
